Connecticut Boys Division 2 Top 8
The last unbeaten team has fallen in Connecticut Division 2 boys hockey, and with that comes some change in this week’s Hockey Night in Boston rankings.
Lyman Hall rises to the No. 1 spot based off a win over Watertown-Pomperaug, but the Trojans also are on a five-game winning streak dating back to their only loss of the season (Dec. 22 vs. Branford).
New No. 2 Sheehan suffered its lone loss to Lyman Hall, and bounced back last week with victories over Eastern Connecticut and JBWA.
As for that last unbeaten? It was East Haven, which had been rolling through its schedule before finally falling against D1 West Haven. The No. 3 Yellowjackets have righted the ship since with wins over Eastern Connecticut and Branford.
Trumbull bumps up to No. 4, splitting a pair of games against D3 Staples (win) and unbeaten D1 Fairfield Warde/Ludlowe (loss).
Also up to No. 5 is North Haven, which rolled to three wins last week against Branford, North Branford and Watertown-Pomperaug.
No. 6 Wethersfield tied Cheshire and then picked up a win over Glastonbury.
At No. 7 is Westhill-Stamford, which played as many games in a week span as it previously had all season. The results were wins vs. North Branford and Staples sandwiching a loss to D1 Darien.
Back in the rankings at No. 8 is Daniel Hand, which is back over .500 after an 0-3 start. Included in that run were back-to-back wins last week vs. Guilford and Amity.
There is only one matchup of ranked teams this week, as Westhill-Stamford takes on Sheehan on Wednesday at Choate’s Remsen Arena.
